Have never eaten Brazilian food before so wasn't really sure what to expect. I went with my boyfriend who is from Brazil, so he knew exactly what to order! I got a delicious (and cheap!) caipirnha to start. The fried yucca is JUST as good as all these reviews imply, then we got some incredible steak & a bean/egg/sausage dish.... More

I am not much of an expert on Brazilian cuisine, but had dinner here last night and this place was really great. Just happened to see a review and decided to check it out early on a week night when seating was not an issue although it was filling up quickly soon after. The fried yucca and sausage was really...

Real Brazilian Food specialties including the one and only Fish Stew called Muqueca with palm oil simply delicious. The Picanha steak and also the Feijoada are delicious. Must start with the salgadinhos including cod croquets Our family can't wait to go back!

This is def the best Brazilian restaurant in the Boston area. The atmosphere is very cozy, the service is great, and most importantly, the food is amazing. For drinks (non-alcoholic) I highly recommend the Swiss lemonade, it is very refreshing and tastes great. For appetizers, my favorites are the shrimp sautée and fried yucca with dried beef. All main entrees... More

The food was delicious I would definitely recommend this place. I give it a 4 because we was waiting for a while before we was asked if we was ready to order and changing the chanel on us when we requested our seating to be near the tv so we could watch the Olympics was a bit rude. Other then... More

We dined at Muqueca last evening with 2 other couples. The other 4 had never been here before and really enjoyed the experience. We had great food in a pleasant atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly. Our server explained the menu and offered suggestions.
